Chai Temple Boards and Education Committees

Building Partnerships

In virtually every congregation with an outstanding school, the most talented lay leaders have devoted themselves to education. Change is most dramatic in those synagogues where the Board of Trustees makes tough education decisions and the Education Committee does policy and evaluation rather than classroom snacks and fund-raising.

To help your congregational lay leaders understand and accept this responsibility, we have created handbooks and discussion guides for both the Board of Trustees and the Education Committee.
